Excellent post Ananda!
On a completely different note, I was struck when reading by the line "like a ghost at a banquet." Is it an accident, or a quirk of an ex English student, that this is so evocative of Banquo's Ghost at the banquet in Macbeth? It's easy for me to put Linden in the role of the Ghost: feeling betrayed by her once closest ally, her emotions hidden like a wraith, etc etc. But what of Covenant in the role of Macbeth? An imposter King, not the answer to the Land's need this time around (as he keeps claiming)? A murderer? Spoiler:
Who goes on to stab Joan to death with, what else, a dagger?
A madman, his mind broken by "the burden of too much time?" A man with a fatally incomplete knowledge of the future? Covenant is perhaps all of these things. One more thing: "Don't touch me!" = "Avaunt, shade!" Question

Great post! I immediately thought about the banquet in Macbeth as well. I'm pretty sure that's intentional. But I haven't thought it through like you have. I was just, like, 'Covenant is Macbeth?! Nah, can't be.' After reading this it all becomes much clearer. Big Grin

If Covenant is Macbeth and Linden is Banquo, who was the murdered King? The obvious answer is the Creator, which is conspicuously absent in these chronicles. Twisted Evil Joan's is Macbeth's mad wife and of course Jeremiah is the future King or future Creator.
